In 1947, Israel's war for independence began, a war for the very existence of the State.
Many came to participate in the war, leaving their families, jobs and comfortable lives behind.
This is the only authentic book that covers the full participation of 240 volunteers from North America that participated in operation Aliyah Bet, the illegal immigration of Jews to Palestine.
These men sailed from the USA to Europe on 10 ships, bringing some 35,000 survivors of the Holocaust to British-Mandate Palestine.
The book describes their incredible journeys.
